there is a "check" plug on the bottom of the trans pan. remove it while the engine is running and warm. if fluid leaks out, its overfull. simply let it leak until it stops and the level will be correct. if nothing comes out, add fluid through the fill hole (15/16" plug on the drivers side of the trans.)while the engine is still running. when it starts to come out of the check plug hole, its full. stop filling with fluid and let the excess fluid drain out the check hole until it stops. replug both and your'e done! ***IMPORTANT*** this trans requires WS (world standard) atf. anything but will cause poor shifting and possible damage to the transmission!

It could. When overfull the fluid can aerate, which will cause slipping and a loss of lubrication.
